The weather has been wacky (we actually got snow yesterday—and it stuck!) and the news has been… well, we all know how heartbreaking the war in Ukraine is. I haven’t been sleeping well, and then we lost an hour last night, due to the start Daylight Savings Time, so I’m tired today. But we had a very good Spinners and Weavers Guild meeting yesterday (on Zoom), and I’m reading a new-to-me author I really like. And a family member adopted two kittens this week and has been sending us adorable photos and videos, which has really lifted my spirits.

What I’ve Been Reading/Watching
Reading: I went on a Celia Lake binge this week. She’s a new author I discovered last summer; she writes gentle, slow-paced, thoughtful historical fantasy romance. I read Eclipse (book #3) last summer, and decided this week that her books were just what I was in the mood for in my current bouts of insomnia… so I bought the rest of the series. So far, I have read Carry On and The Fossil Door, reread Eclipse, and then read Fool’s Gold. I started The Hare and the Oak this weekend. And it’s been good for my Goodreads challenge; I’m three books ahead of schedule!
Listening to: I’m listening Index, a History of The, which I am thoroughly enjoying. I’m really glad I have a print version to look at after I finish a section, both for the occasional illustrations and examples, and so I can see all the names and foreign words. I’m not at all sure the narrator is pronouncing the Latin properly, so it helps if I look at it afterward.
Watching: Star Trek: Discovery Season 4; Foyle’s War Season 6; Partners in Crime (the 1980s version, with Francesca Annis and James Warwick.)
